If you are heading to the lake this weekend and your plan includes having a good time, partying and not thinking too much, then Toby Keith's new album "Big Dog Daddy" could be the sound track to a beer-soaked boat-nanza.
Oklahoma native Keith isn't breaking new ground with this one, but that's not really the point. The album is sonically impeccable and was produced by Keith himself. He pulls off one sentimental track, "I Know She Hung the Moon," on the record, but most of the album is for boot-stomping and beer swilling.
If you take three of the new songs' in order, "High Maintenance Woman," "Get My Drink On" and "Walk It Off"' you have a glimpse into a day in the life of any average Midwestern man, and this is where Keith excels: singing about twangy Everyman thoughts and feelings to tequila-fueled party people.
Nothing new, but not bad.
